“Great little spot”

Overall Rating

We enjoyed this state park very much. Only stayed one night. It was a little buggy, but we are still getting use to the Florida bugs, which might be worse then Alaska. Went for a Kayak and it was truly beautiful the channel was alive with fish. Although it can get shallow at low life know your path if you go out at low tide. We couldn't enjoy the beach because we have a dog so we drove a little north and let our dog run on Amelia Island, also no dogs, but if you can drive on a beach, god be dammed I'm going to let my dog run on it.

“So much to do and see....if the weather cooperates”

Arrival at this fabulous park can be a little daunting if you don't realize you first turn into the park, pull over into a designated area - while trying to talk to the Ranger - but only pull over. After you pull over, then get out and go inside the Ranger station. We pulled up to the Ranger - who stands outside to greet you as they see you coming. But then he said to pull over, but we had to back up our rig to pull into the spot for RVs. Then you have to turn around, and cross over A1A. The Rangers are the best at welcoming you and answering any questions.

Little Talbot Island State Park campground is what you might expect on a Little Island; but it has water, electric, picnic tables, clothes line and a fire ring as well as relatively clean bathrooms and showers. We were glad we were in an RV, but this campground seems better designed for tents or pop-ups. We thought we had one of the best sites for an RV, except it was narrow. It was very private, with only one neighbor out our back window. But there was enough space and foliage to not make it "in the window." We had rain and/or clouds every day. Aside from the weather, here are the good points:
-Private
-full of nature
-family oriented
-fabulous outdoor activities from beach combing, kayaking, hiking in a hammock, fishing, birding, bike riding, small museum, wildlife, knowledgeable Park Rangers
-Relatively quiet, in most parts of the campground (but A1A borders the outside and there were a few hot rods/motorcycles that like to drive a bit too fast/noisily)
The only negatives:
-if it rains, it can be pretty miserable if you are in a tent. The road and ground is sandy/dirt. So you will have ruts and a bumpy ride in and puddles for the children to splash in!
-the sites are narrow and some are close together.
-when it rains, it is hard to keep the floors in the bathrooms and showers clean.
I've uploaded a blog that tells all about the State Park which has so much to offer if you like nature and the outdoors.
